Kamen Rider Agito (仮面ライダーアギト Kamen Raidā Agito, Masked Rider ΑGITΩ), is the eleventh installment in the popular Kamen Rider tokusatsu franchise. The series acted as the sequel to Kamen Rider Kuuga and represented the 30th Anniversary of the Kamen Rider Series. The series was also a joint collaboration between Ishimori Productions and Toei and was shown on TV Asahi from January 28, 2001, to January 27, 2002.

Why It Rocks

  1. There are many likable characters such as Shouichi Tsugami/Kamen Rider Agito, Makoto Hikawa/Kamen Rider G3, Sumiko Ozawa and Ryo Ashihara.
  2. Mana Kazaya is one of the stronger female characters to be brought in to the franchise as she wasn't just there for the male audience to be mesmerized at, on top of that we got to learn her backstory, that benefited into immense character development.
  3. We were given some pretty good acting,
    • Especially with Jun Yamazaki, who gave an outstanding performance on a character, who could really get on your nerves due to his mean-spirited nature.
  4. It is one of the Kamen Rider seasons that focuses more on it's plot, as well as giving story-arc to the character, as this show only had one episode that is considered a breather/filler episode.
    • Even having the storyline to be well-constructed and very engaging.
  5. The aesthetics of this show are very simplistic yet beautifully done for what was going at the time.
  6. The opening theme is simultaneously both calming and could just get you into the mood of the the show within seconds.
  7. The fight scenes are decently choreographed, on top of that a few of them have remarkable cinematography.
  8. It had a decent summer movie mainly Kamen Rider Agito: Project G4.
  9. It had a crossover with Kamen Rider Ryuki.
  10. This season also had a decent tribute episode within Kamen Rider Zi-O.

Bad Qualities

  1. Toru Hojo is probably the show's worst character being an unlikeable jerk, who doesn't seem to grow as the series progresses, and is always mean-spirited towards Makoto.
  2. The Lords in general are weak and uninteresting villains, being one of the franchise's most forgettable villain groups to exist.
  3. The finale wasn't that good at all, and the final battle was underwhelming.
  4. It aired alongside Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger, an mediocre sentai season.
  5. This season also had a terrible tribute episode within Kamen Rider Decade.
  6. Most people consider Agito to be an average season of Kamen Rider, often getting mixed reception. So most of it's flaws can be found on the Terrible TV Shows Wiki.
